Family

D-(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate oligomer hydrolase, putative (IPR016582)

Short name: OHBut_olig_hydro_put

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents a group of predicted D-(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate oligomer hydrolases (also known as 3HB-oligomer hydrolase), which function in the degradation of poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB). These enzymes catalyse the hydrolysis of D(-)-3-hydroxybutyrate oligomers (3HB-oligomers) into 3HB-monomers [PMID: 16233278, PMID: 15170237].
